Insidious 3 Officially Announced
Entertainment One and FilmDistrict confirm that Leigh Whannell has been tapped to pen a third Insidious film following Insidious: Chapter 2's record breaking weekend. This confirms details Whannell told us about a third film earlier.
Confirming what writer Leigh Whannell told Den of Geek about doing a third Insidious film, Entertainment One and FilmDistrict have already proudly announced production on the film.
According to the press statement, Whannell (Insidious, Insidious: Chapter 2, Saw) has been tapped by the studios and production company Blumhouse Productions to pen a third film to the micro-budgeted mega-success films. Insidious: Chapter 2, on a budget of $5 million, just opened to $41 million this weekend in the U.S. alone, which is one of the biggest September openings of all time. While Producer Jason Blum of Blumhouse Productions will also be returning, there is no confirmation about the cast or director Wan.
Wan, who is currently helming Fast & Furious 7, has previously stated that he wants to move away from horror and try other avenues of entertainment. Meanwhile, last month star Patrick Wilson said to me, “I don’t know what you do with the Lambert family after this. I think we have a nice closure.”
